Many projects have attachments that you need to print out in order to complete the store visits. Others have attachments that you're not required to print, but you might want to print so you can be better prepared for your visit.
There are several ways to get the docs to a printer. But first, here's how to know if you are required to print.
Check the Project Attributes. If printing is required, it will say so there.
To get to the Project Attributes, tap the project name to view the details and scroll down. In most cases, the project description will also tell you if printing is required.
This information is available before you're assigned, so if you're unable or unwilling to print, those types of projects are probably not for you.
To access the documents you need to print, tap the Attachments button. The documents you need to print are called out.
If you don't see printing required, then you don't need to print. See the following example. It has attachments, but there is no Project Attributes section because there are no special requirements.
Four Ways to Print:
There are four ways to print:
1) Print from your device
2) Send it to yourself or someone with access to a printer
3) Access the docs from app.survey.com
4) Send it to a Fedex and pick it up.
1) Print from your device
After you open an attachment, you'll see two icons at the top right of the screen. Tap the one on the far right (printer icon) to open a dialogue. This should only be used if you're device and printer are able to communicate with each other via wifi.
2) Send it to yourself or someone else with access to a printer
Tapping the icon to the left (sharing symbol) will open up a sharing dialogue that lets you send the attachment somewhere. Choose the way you want to send (e.g. email, text, etc.), choose the recipient, and send.
This is a great way to get it onto a PC that is connected to a computer that is connected to a printer.
3) Login to your account on a PC and access the docs there.
If you have access to a computer that's connected to a printer, you can login to your account by going to app.survey.com. Use the email and password combination you use to login to the app. Choose "Project Docs" from the left menu to access the documents.
**Important** You can only access documents for projects from the web that have been assigned to you. You won't be able to find ones that are available or requested.
4) Send to FedEx
To print to a local FedEx, tap the Print to FedEX button at the bottom of the attachment and follow the instructions. You can view the locations on the map. Please note that you are responsible for the printing expenses.
